3.Like a restaurant or cafe proprietor, learn what your visitors like to eat.

4.If you're putting out food for your garden birds, it's crucial to keep feeders, baths and tables clean.

5. It's not all about food — water is important, even in cold weather.

6. Make your garden a desirable home for birds into the spring by thinking about what they need for the breeding season.

7. Bird-friendly plants can also offer lots of natural food.

8. Insect-friendly plants aren't just good for insects — they're good for birds, too.

9. Be a wildlife-friendly gardener and avoid using pesticides.

10.If you can offer lots of these things, you should be well on the way to attracting lots of birds and other wildlife.
